We’re at the end of our 12-week journey. I didn’t participate nearly as much as I’d expected and hoped to. But- it has made a difference. Every run I went on and every workout I attended was more than I would have done if not for this program. I’m more active in my daily life now than I was 12 weeks ago. My diet is still very far from perfect, but I’ve caught myself in the last week about to grab a piece of Easter candy and put it back because there’s a weigh-in this week!
Speaking of the weigh-in… well, I didn’t accomplish much. At all. I mean, at least the number went down (a laughable amount). You get out what you put in, I guess.
I’m not ready yet. I’m not ready for this to be done. The support and motivation were wonderful, and I didn’t realize how beneficial this was until close to the end. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity.
It’s ridiculous that I’m not ready yet. I’ve known that this was a 12 week program from the start. I’ve known the end date as long. I’ve known that it’s not forever. I should have taken advantage of more.
Reflecting on this, I pray that this isn’t how the end of life goes (woah, too deep). I want to take advantage of all that is offered. I don’t want to be leaving kicking and screaming (even though I know there’s something better!).
Change is hard. But I will be out there on race day, running more than I would have been without this program!
